Great Sangria

js587 Aug 16, 2006 11:57 PM

I want to Ibiza and got hooked on great sangria in the summer. I've tried pitchers at a bunch of places (most recently Suba) in the city and have had nothing but dissapointment.

Can anyone recommend a place (East side, below 42nd St) that serves great sangria. And I'm going to push my luck and ask if anyone know where I can get champagne sangria.

    I am truly blessed with having foodies as parents! I can't drink ( i'm twelve and if that turns you off go try to buy a childhood!) but I know New York backwards. Sevilla restaurant is very good but a loooooong wait. It is a nice atmosphere too!

      Champagne Sangria???!? Ooh -- that sounds lovely! Where have you had that? (Beg your pardon, I meant that for the OP).

      I second Cafe Espanol; the sangria there is really fantastic. Plus, it's an adorable restaurant with great food.

        I like the sangria at Xunto and at Pipa. Delicious!

          most of the sangrias i had in nyc were made south american style with too much added sugar... in spain and west or france it is more fruity and less sweet. well i know tastes vary and i'm still interested in knowing a good place of not so sweet sangria.

          Meson Sevilla (w 46th st) had a good white sangria (last time i had it was 3 yrs ago)

            Bar Carrera in the East Village has a variety of Sangria-style concoctions that are mixed fresh by the bartender. Yummy pintxos, too!

                The sangria at Pipa is one of my favorites in the city.

                    El Faro makes truly excellent sangria.

                      the food is really mediocore, but the tapas bar on the corner of clinton and stanton (forget the name) has amazing sangria.

                          i've had amazing sangria at pure food and wine. the white sangria is so delicious! it's a raw food restaurant, but i've been there just to drink.
